A Trip to OMSI

On Tuesday (TAX DAY!!) the kids & I took a trip to OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science & Industry) with Mindi, Mia & James. Malia & Alex had never been there before, and I hadn't been there in at least 10 years, maybe more. Right now they have a big dinosaur exhibit up, which was great for the kids to see. Both Malia & Mia have recently been learning about dinosaurs in preschool. It was fun for all the many different things to do and explore. Here are some pictures I took along the way. Alex espeically loved anything that involved playing in water.
The art center was a nice break, where the kids could sit, unwind and "create" a little bit. Here are Malia & Mia stamping, and Malia's masterpiece. Alex wanted a picture of his work too......but this isn't actually "his" artwork........he snagged it off the table when he saw me taking a picture of Malia. Someone left this behind, so Alex claimed it as his own. :)

I love this picture of the boys playing with "flubber". They were so engrossed in it!

Here the kids are taking a break.

Checking out the huge T-Rex. He (?) moved and growled. Too cool!

The girls as dinosaurs:

Overall, we had a great day! The kids were exhausted by the end of the was I!
I think we're due for a zoo trip soon. Just waiting for the weather to warm up a little. :)

"Children are the future. Unless we stop them Now." Thats my husband's favorite Homer Simpson quote. Seriously, though, beautiful children.
